This was the second Summer Winter dinner we attended, and it was, hands down, one of the most interesting, most fun, and most delicious meal we've had so far in 2011! Not only was the food artfully and thoughtfully prepared, but the drinks (home-brewed beer + mix/match wine) were phenomenal. The crowd was charming and delightful. The setting (a private residence in Topanga Canyon) was perfect - we dined to the soft hum of records playing on the turntable and basked in the cozy warmth provided by the burning embers in the fireplace.
PS. If live in LA, and you want an invite to the next one, please leave your email in comments for more info. :)
